As the school year winds down, it gets harder and harder to sit and study. I'd much prefer to be outside working on the yard, barn, pasture, anything. So would my children. So we've been slackers.
Yesterday we went lookin for morels and wild leeks. I think we're still too early. Our dandelions aren't even up yet. Things are growing slow this spring. Farmers are running out of hay and the pastures aren't producing yet. I found a site with dandelion and wild leek (ramps) recipes if anyone is interested.
My family loves dandelion jelly and is actually looking forward to picking and cleaning the blossoms again this year. My son likes dandelion greens in a salad. He's a born forager.
Tomorrow is a special treat-we get a trip to Wisconsin to visit family. Then Thursday it's the first auction of the year. It's a two hour drive, but they have cattle panels and round pen panels that I'm hoping will go for a price that I can afford. I want to have a good fence for my goats and my daughter would love to finish her round pen for training her horses.
Today the temp is supposed to hit 67! Dd3 will probably come down in shorts. She's been rushing the season. Sundresses at 50 degrees and flip flops on ice!
Well, the cattle are calling. Mooooove it. Time for feeding.
Have a blessed day.
